Golden Hiss

Yes, and here we go again... with the one and only For The Sake Of The Song end of year list. The jury has spoken: here are the magnificent seven of 2011.

1. Hiss Golden Messenger - Poor Moon
2. PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
3. Howe Gelb & A Band Of Gypsies - Alegrías
4. Tom Waits - Bad As Me
5. Bonnie Prince Billy - Wolfroy Goes To Town
6. Josh T. Pearson - Last Of The Country Gentlemen
7. Gillian Welch - The Harrow & The Harvest

Knock once, now knock twice. And stay gold, pony boys...

Hiss Golden Messenger - Call Him Daylight
Hiss Golden Messenger - Westering

Just read Uncut's 'best of' list last night... you have very similar taste to that of their editors. But *they* totally missed Howe, which is criminal.

I really need to purchase Hiss Golden Messenger. We're practically neighbors! :-)

Better yet, try to get them to play at your local venue. Bet you they're good live, too.
